with Vimala Rowe
  • This event has now passed

‘Flawless tributes to the great jazz vocalists are a speciality of hers’ 

The Guardian

Starring Vimala Rowe and inspired by the legendary 1956 concert at which Billie’s music was accompanied by extracts from her autobiography Lady Sings The Blues, this words-and-music show gives a thrilling insight into this immortal jazz talent.

Rowe gives her unique interpretations of the Lady Day catalogue while quoting from Billie’s extraordinary life story, with a band led by pianist/MD Alex Webb. 

The show includes many of the most well-known Holiday songs, ranging – as did the Carnegie Hall concert – from the optimism of her 1930s work (What A Little Moonlight Can Do, Fine And Mellow) through her 1940s Torch songs (My Man, I Cover The Waterfront) to her self-penned classics Don’t Explain and Lady Sings The Blues – and many more.

Vimala Rowe is a startling recent arrival on the UK vocal scene, appearing on two albums in 2016: 'Call Me Lucky' by Alex Webb & The Copasetics, and 'Out Of The Sky' by Vimala Rowe & John Etheridge.
